Eastleigh sign Shaun Hobson on loan from Bournemouth

Ben Strevens’ Spitfires have completed the loan signing of Shaun Hobson  from Premier League side AFC Bournemouth.

The 20-year-old defender has agreed to join The Spitfires until the end of the season

Speaking on his arrival, Strevens said:

‘Shaun is a player who we have monitored over the course of the season and is someone who has played at this level already, having been on loan at Chester last season.

‘Due to transfer windows, we had to get this deal done yesterday however Shaun is still a couple of weeks away from being match fit.

‘He will continue his rehabilitation at Bournemouth and then will link up with the squad when he is ready. He is the perfect player to bolster our defence and someone who will play a part as we come to the back end of the season and push for the play-off’s’
